Hawaiian Christmas Roast
|Roaster Location:||Honolulu, Hawaii|
|Review Date:||December 1997|
Dominated by a pruny, rather heavy pungency at the heart of the profile, livened by only a faint shimmer of acidity. Not quite enough sweetness to balance the pungency or acidity to brighten it. The grace notes tend toward the dry and herbal.
This coffee is dominated by a pruny, rather heavy pungency at the heart, livened by a faint shimmer of acidity. Not quite enough sweetness or acidity to balance the pungency. Hands down the most colorful package in the cupping. Great lion graphic (fierce but friendly). But the best part is the three coffee beans in hula skirts dancing out of the flower over the lion's head.
Who Should Drink It
The holiday factor:Enough presence to wash down heavy holiday desserts and dry enough to balance their sweetness. The kids should enjoy the lion and the hula beans.
